Blessindo-BST Safety - Detectable - Hygiene - Food Grade Products

Food and beverage industries account for almost 24% of all manufacturing injuries according to EU OSHA. While
workplace safety and compliance is a high priority in the industry, food safety always comes first.

Industrial safety identification solutions, with low contamination risk, offer new opportunities to reduce workplace accidents and increase workplace safety, efficiency and compliance, while securing food safety.

INCREASE WORKPLACE SAFETY
In the food processing industry, safety hazards are around every corner. Whether it is slippery floors, chemical exposure, pinch points, wash-down or industrial machinery maintenance, safety challenges are a constant
presence. In fact, statistics from EU OSHA show that almost 24% of manufacturing injuries occur in food and
beverage industries.

When you consider the safety obstacles of a food processing environment, it’s clear that workplace visuals are essential. However, concerns for food safety within harsh wash-down environments prevent many food processors from properly identifying hazards on the processing floor.

PROTECT FOOD SAFETY
Food safety is a top priority for food processors. When this goal is met with a harsh wash-down environment,
food industries are often forced to decide between maintaining a high level of food safety and implementing workplace safety, continuous improvement and compliance best practices.

With  signs, labels and tags, you no longer have to choose. They can confidently create a visual workplace for employees, while maintaining a strong food safety programme.

INCREASE EFFICIENCY
By offering best practice operating and maintenance procedures on a machine they were designed for,
companies can increase productivity and reduce waste. Directional labels, shelf identification, and other facility
identification can help implement a lean manufacturing environment, with benefits for workforce education.

INCREASE COMPLIANCE
Food safety is the number one issue facing food processors. Food recalls cost processors millions and a damaged brand reputation. Because food safety directly impacts public health, government agencies develop stringent regulations. To comply with these, food processors must develop protocols and ensure implementation on the processing floor.  This can be done with  labels.

SOLUTIONS
Safety signs all ISO 7010 safety signs are available in safety products harsh wash-down resistant label materials to caution co-workers and inform them about mandatory personal protection equipment.

GHS/CLP labels
Companies in the European Union are required to identify and label all chemicals in the workplace in line with the
GHS/CLP regulations.

Pipe marking
Easily identify the contents of factory pipes with colour coded pipe markers to increase maintenance efficiency,
and warn employees, and first responders, about potential danger.

Floor marking
Reliable floor marking for low, medium and heavy traffic floors is available to separate traffic into safe walking
paths, and vehicle traffic lanes.

Visual tagging
Easily communicate and update safe or unsafe to use equipment and asset statuses after inspection.

Lockout/Tagout
